    my dog toilet area stinks. What do australians use for this?
    Im thinking desexing will take a lot of aroma from that urine im smelling and dont like.
    He was last bathed/soaked for 1o mins, then rinsed in malaseb on Sunday, and that yeasty smell is returning. Tomorrow, i'll do him tomorrow. That'll be bath 3.
    How much charcoal do you give a 44kg dog for farts? Bones dont ya know.
    How much water is Brian drinking ? Dehydration could be a problem. Check gums and do a pinch test on his skin.

    First wee in the morning - after being inside all night - urine will always have a stronger smell and colour - but during the day - then should be normal. I have found this to be the case with both entire and de-sexed males. So 'boy smell' - don't agree !

    UTI ? With everything else you are saying - yeasty smell etc - vet visit is warranted and strongly suggested - with a urine sample taken in for testing.

    Has the yeasty smell increased ? This could be a food related issue/reaction.

    As Brian has only been with you a short period of time - there could be heaps of reasons for the smell. Was the smell very noticeable when he first came to your place - or has it changed dramatically since being with you ?

    Change in diet - will also affect smell and colour of urine and stools - this would/could also account for the farts. Brian could also be reacting to the type of food he is now being fed. Some pups can have bad reactions to beef or any of the other meats.

    Stress should also be considered and don't underestimate the effect it could have on Brian.

    Good Luck and hope that you get to the 'bottom' of the problem ! smiley-eatdrink004.gif

    Ok, yoghurt going into the mix. That's nice n organic solution sounding.
    Definately no UTI. I can detect a UTI in a dog or a person with my nose. But i also tested his urine and everything is normal, and no symptoms.
    I am of the belief that entire males urine has a distinct smell, not present in the desexed male. If this is contributing, as i say, its temp.

    We've just had a romp in paddock. I want to go walking, but its too late, and the roos will be coming out. and he's not roo proof yet.
    His recall is still at 80% with food.
    He's following his nose most of the time he's out.

    I had that problem with a rescue GSD I had, his urine reeked something fierce when I got him. I think it was his body getting rid of all the rubbish in his system and he also had a bad habit of forgetting to drink to flush it properly. Went away in a couple of weeks on a decent diet.

    Hmmm now reading this I recall the rescue I got years ago also had smelly urine for a time.... Can't remember how long it lasted ...she had been starved so I expected some issues.

    here is a link, to Brian's first walk out.
    He has a unreliable recall we found. and introduced himself to others, twice! He seems to be able to keep up just. But konks out on the deck asap on return.

    'bernie' - just a little bit concerned about the above quote - particularly the bolded part.

    Brian is ~ 12 months old, going to be a big pup on maturity and he is not there yet by a long shot. He has probably never had much exercise in his past life (assumption) and is definitely not as fit as your 2.

    Fitness needs to be built up over time - so no wonder he konks out. Over exercising him early will/could cause big problems when he gets not much older with all/some of his joints.

    Friends of mine had a rottie x mastiff - by the time it was 14 months old - it required knee surgery - because of over exercising their pup.

    I would hate to read on here that Brian needed something like that.

    Take care !

    If he is stinky inside and out you can try adding raw grated carrot to his food - a handful every day. Good for detox - will help with bad breath, bad skin, bad farts, bad urine - the whole kit and kaboodle. If he has a yeasty smell have you checked his ears?

    Blimey! I dont want to run the poor pup to ground! I feel so guilty.
    Ok, i am at walking brian pace. He's off leash. All up, he walked 1km. He's usually still running out to go with my dogs, when they are on the return journey. So just about keeping up.
    Is this too much? I dont want to put strain on his juvenile bones.

    Smelly Brian.
    Ok, we have gotten rid of that awful smelly pee. I used the solution and cleaned the pee area down, and i was out sniffing his urine after 1st pee this morning, and it doesnt really smell any different. Certainly not how it did the first week. So maybe it was toxins coming out.

    The skin: malaseb wash/soak/rinse x 4. And no longer can smell the yeast. So didnt have to go to the horse remedy.
    His areas of skin that were broken, are healed over. And now he has somewhere to sit, other than at the end of a chain in mud, he's healing.
    He's back to vet nurse tomorrow, as they didnt record the current microchip no. so im hoping to get him weighed and see what's going on. and adjust amounts accordingly.
    malaseb has worked!
    this is what they gave me for my rottie, but it didnt work on him, so i was sceptical to be honest. But im impressed. Thanks for the tip guys.
